For those unaware of the service, users can allow access to their game library and any associated DLC for their friends or family to play. There are more details and some restrictions of course but no doubt this is a good service to implement.

From what I read it looks like you have to have had them log in on a computer you use. So of course I'd have to share my user name and password with a friend so they could log on on their computer .

I sure hope you're missing something. Otherwise, interested in this as well. Got my Steam Library of old games to go with my Canadian bro GL's 300+ library of recent, new and shiny games.
